worth it as a treat

Nothing to fault really. Immaculate course, great facilities, staff attentive. Great value if you do one of the 'deals' (Winter, fourball, Twilight round, etc).

Top Testing Course

Greens were very testing due to the dry conditions and undulations. Service of staff second to none, so helpful and friendly

Amazing course

What can I say about the Grove....Probably one of the finest courses I have played. Unfortunately I did not do it any justice with a poor score. Fairways are like carpet and greens are lightning quick. A real test in my opinion.
Clubhouse is great and staff are very attentive. Food afterwards was the only real disappointment. Service on the course was great as was the set up at tee off.

Nice course as you'd expect for the price. Paid £99 post 2pm twilight rate which is still bloody expensive and it's hard to say it's worth it especially if you pay the 'normal' summer green fee which appears to be £170. Glad I played it though as was staying at the hotel itself so would have been silly not to. Very friendly in the proshop in and around the club as you'd expect. Course played well and greens were good though a bit less receptive than I would have expected. Course was interesting to play and a good test. Unlikely to play again given the associated cost.

5* Venue

Wow.
Everything about The Grove is class. From arrival to exit.
The course is perfectly manicured and the greens are so fast and tricky.
Can be forgiving off the tee in places which is great because 2nd shots are very demanding and this is where you can shoot a high or low score.

Love everything about the place. Those that say it too much money can't appreciate the course, venue, service and experience.

the friendliest place I've ever played at

great course, condition is outstanding, facilities 1st class and genuinely great people who work there. It's pricey, especially in summer, but winter rates make it a bit more reasonable

Fantastic Course - Always a pleasure

The Grove is a special place. Although a corporate course - I always feel welcome and love the little touches they provide - like club cleaning, car valet parking, amazing practice facilities and always a smile.
I look forward to my next round!
